Eastern District of Virginia Courthouse in Alexandria

We follow all cases happening at the federal courthouse in Carlyle.

Via WaPo

The Native Americans fighting the Washington Redskins over trademark protections filed a motion in U.S. District Court in Alexandria on Monday, asking the court to toss the team’s lawsuit against them.

The motion argues that team owner Dan Snyder doesn’t have the legal right to sue the five Native Americans who won a key decision by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office earlier this year. The patent office ruled that the name and logo are disparaging and canceled the team’s trademark registration.

The team sued last month, asserting that “Redskins” is not offensive and that the federal agency erred in stripping away six Redskins trademarks.

Snyder has promised never to change the team name, which he contends honors Native Americans. The team has cited polls that have shown that a majority of Native Americans or Americans do not find the team name offensive.

In their motion against the NFL giant, the Native Americans argue that, based on federal law, they are not “parties in interest” who can be sued in a trademark case. The Native Americans — led by Amanda Blackhorse, a social worker and member of the Navajo Nation — have no legal or economic interest in wresting control of the Redskins trademark for themselves as a competing business might.
